about

Prior to working on my first album I wanted to get familiar with audio engineering to learn how to produce the sounds I had in mind. These covers were essentially my practice runs.

My music is free. If you are in a position to be able to pay for it and think I've done a good job, you have the option to support me by setting your own price for this album (on which I spent hundreds of hours, excluding practice time). Every little bit helps me toward better equipment and allows me to spend less time working at a drugstore and more time making music.

Track Name: Cosmic Castaway (Electrasy cover)
Lose my head to the chemical freeway
Coming up on overload
In a mystic new dimension
Purify and sanctify me
What? So I'm in no endgame;
Move my piece right off the board
Losing sure is easy
So I am no more

But I'm not broken
In my dreams, I win
In here I'm nothing
A cosmic castaway

In my head, I'm a chemical dreamer
Speed up to burnout mode
Coming up on the fifth dimension
Beauty, don't crucify me
Yeah, so I need no mind game
Poisoning my lonely soul
Losing sure is easy
So I am no more

But I'm not broken
In my dreams, I win
And I take over
Cause I'm no loser
And I'm in - you're not
Bad dreams don't stop
I'm all screwed up
A cosmic castaway x3

And I want but have none
Bad dreams, lust thoughts
In here with no pain
You hurt me again
And I want but have none
I should beat the alien
Here, I'm no one
A cosmic castaway x5
Track Name: Dark Matter (Andrew Belle cover)
Just 'cause your hearts afraid
Doesn't give a right to say
'I was born this way...'
You see the part you've played
And all the silhouettes you've made
Fleet the light of day

I wish I was innocent in a bad way
But I've found you don't come after soldiers
Unless they were yours in the first place

I swim in a violet sea
But I'm bending the light connecting you to me
So write a lettre de marque and see
If this dark matter heart can bleed out right

Why do I push away?
When your welcome's overstayed
All I breathe is grey
But through the disarray
You're the emissary vein
To my left-right brain

I wish I was reticent in my own strength
But I've found you don't hold your composure
When I say that with a straight face

[Chorus]

See, you brought your wits about you
The black bear that'll haunt you
If I can feel it, do I need to see it, do I?
See, you brought your wits about you
The black bear that'll haunt you
I don't see it, did I ever feel it, did I?
See, you brought your wits about you
The black bear that'll haunt you

[Chorus]
Track Name: Mechanical (Moist cover)
Quiet your breathing, keep to the shadows
Life isn't easy, love isn't kind
Touch is so simple; almost inhuman.
Unearthly feelings, synthetic mind.

I see the world
Falling to pieces
Crumbling beneath us
And it's just so hard to fight
Those who control us:
We are destroyers
This mechanical life

Out of the darkness words are unspoken
I know we're helpless, I know we're blind
Under the starlight we walk on water
We walk forever until we die

[Chorus]
This mechanical life
x2

I see this life
Falling to pieces
Crumbling beneath us
And it's just so hard to fight
Those who control us:
We are destroyers
This mechanical life x4
Track Name: Sparks (Coldplay cover)
Did I drive you away?
I know what you'll say
You'll say
'Oh, sing one we know'
But I promise you this:
I'll always look out for you
Yeah, that's what I'll do

I say 'oh'
Cryin' 'oh'
I saw sparks

My heart is yours
It's you that I hold on to
Yeah, that's what I do
And I know I was wrong
But I won't let you down
No; yes, I will; yes, I will...
Yes, I will now

Singing 'oh'
I cry 'oh'
I saw sparks x4
